The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

For Democrats It's Only About Power And Never About Principle

Here's the Nonsense:  Democrats are the party that stands up for people.  They always put the best interest of others ahead of personal motives.

Here's the Horse Sense:  The ONLY thing Democrats are interested in is power and control.  They are unprincipled and this recent story about the DNC chair is a perfect example.

A mostly overlooked story in Politico reveals the lack of principles that are prevalent among Democrats.  DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has shown her true colors by compromising her principles when faced with the thought of possibly losing her job as DNC chair.  While this is no surprise, it is a perfect example of just how Democrats work.

Democrats, especially the White House, have been less than satisfied with the job she's done.  It is said she is too apt to pursue an independent agenda instead of one with the blessing of the White House.  But instead of facing their dissatisfaction and trying to find solutions that would allow her to keep her job, Ms. Wasserman Schultz has considered strong-arming President Obama.

The Politico story says of Wasserman Schultz:  "when she sensed Obama was considering replacing her as chair in 2013, she began to line up supporters to suggest the move was both anti-woman and anti-Semitic."

So, she believes that he is anti-woman and anti-Semitic, but she's willing to abandon principles that should cause her to stand up and fight for women and Jews so that she can keep her position of power.  

As a Democrat she is supposed to believe that the Republicans are pursuing a war on women, but when it comes to Democrats, she'll only stand up for women if she can use it to keep her job.

Add to that, she's Jewish and yet she will allow Obama a pass for being anti-Semitic as long as she keeps her job.

Talk about hypocrisy!

But this is who Democrats are.  There are no heartfelt principles.  All they are interested in is power and control.  Why do you think we keep seeing Obama violate the Constitution and take actions that are illegal?  It's because he wants more and more power.

That's who these progressives are.  And that's why Americans are losing their rights and freedoms, because these people will do anything in return for gaining and maintaining power.

Why are Democrats getting away with it?  A perfect example was this past weekend when warning came out that numerous shopping malls are in danger of terrorist attack, with Minnesota's Mall of America specifically being named as a target.  I heard a news report about the terrorist threat in which they played a short clip from an interview with a customer shopping at the Mall of America asking him what he thought about the heightened security and the terror threat at the mall.  He replied that he didn't see much difference in security, but that he didn't worry about it because life was too busy to spend time listening to the news.

Did you get that?  Life is too busy to spend time listening to the news!  That explains in a nutshell why America is in trouble.  People aren't involved.  They're not even paying attention to what's in the news.  They're more interested in their lives than they are in what's happening in the world.

It's no wonder America has little chance of survival.  Americans have sold their souls for their self-interests.
